Whats our chances?
 
Hi there me and my girlfriend have just started looking into moving to America. I am a BMW technician and she is a PE teacher. I have a possible job in miami but nothing definate. We are both 22 and just wondered if anyone had any advice for us and what the chances are off being accepted for immigration.
Thanks Steve and Emily

probably zero.

Pe teachers and service engineers are not on the H1b list.

unless he's high up, they probably wouldn't bother with the costs involved though.

Anyway, read - http://britishexpats.com/articles/us...rk-in-the-usa/

see if you fit in with any of that.

Hello Steve and Emily. Welcome to BE. :)

One of our members lives in Miami...but he's moving north a little. Not sure where but probably Orlando 'cos it's more like the UK with sun. Have you considered Orlando?

Even if you had a chance to even get a visa, as a BMW Tech I would stay in the UK the pay/working conditions are better for auto techs there compared to the US anyway (the pay structure is f**ked and not the same at all). There are also tech schools churning out low paid low level techs here factory trained (the same age as you). Whoever in Miami is filling you with crap.
